LHHS SkillsUSA students dominate at 2011 regionals

The year is turning out to be a record year for the 2011 SkillsUSA club. A record seventy-five LHHS SkillsUSA club members traveled to Yuma and returned from their regional competition last Friday with yet another load of medals. After setting a record for total medals the previous year of 24, Havasu smashed that by winning 34 medals this year out of a possible 41. LHHS won more medals than any other school in Yuma at the Regional competition. Each program of our SkillsUSA club was able to come away with either a first, second, or third place medal. The trip was a major success and a true demonstration of the hard work that both the advisors and students put into being successful in SkillsUSA. Listed below are the winners. If you have them in your class, please congratulate them on a job well done. (Story continues below pictures. Click a picture for a larger view.)
